Notes:
Tom LoeDeveloped by fly fishing guide Tom Loe at Crowley Lake, CA. He was the founder of Sierra Drifters Guide Service and now resides in LaPine, Oregon. The Spruce-a-bou was designed to imitate baitfish that inhabit the Eastern Sierra, particularly sculpin and squawfish. Tom suggests using a moderate to full sink tip or a full sinking line within most of the Eastern Sierran streams with this fly. The fly is pulled along the bottom with erratic strips using a downstream sweep. Mend the line upstream to allow the fly to sink. Pull the fly upstream with 4-6" tugs along the bank or seam.

The flies are available at many fly shops such as: Crowley Lake Fish Camp, The Troutfitter, The Trout Fly, San Diego Fly Shop and StroudsTackle. The colors that Sierra Drifters have recommended are Ginger and Golden Olive.
